The Whistlers
One of the pioneers of the Romanian New Wave of the 2000s, filmmaker Corneliu Porumboiu, a master of satirical social observation, turns to genre for his new film – although his distinctive deadpan humor is very much on point. This most unusual crime flick revolves around a corrupt cop’s rather absurd efforts to redeem a gangster under the law’s shadow, something that also involves his voluptuous girlfriend (named Gilda, of course), a slew of gun-toting heavies, and the curious whistling language he must master to pull off a twisty caper. As they say, “it’s complicated.” The playful cast and the filmmaker’s affectionate Eastern Bloc take on classic film noir archetypes makes it all terrific fun.
